The Headies 2020 successfully held last week Sunday (21st February) where Nigerian rapper and reality TV star Laycon was one of the guest performers at the event but the major takeaway from his overall outing, turned out to be the gigantic pair of shoes he rocked while performing which made for a trend on microblogging platform, Twitter. A week later, Laycon has come out to tell the world why he chose to perform in those shoes.

Laycon who performed with DJ Neptune to the tunes of their hit single—‘Nobody’— wore a black round-neck vest to go with a matching glittering jacket and pant, topping the clothing with an all-white sneakers, a gigantic one at that, drawing comparison to the massive footwears Nephilims like Goliath wore back in the Biblical times.

On what looked to be an Open-Mic performance, Laycon addressed the audience on why he wore such “oversized” pair of shoes to an event as grand as The Headies. Laycon said: “I told my stylist ‘I have different shoes but I want this one, it’s very big, it makes a statement.’ Every step I take is a big step towards wherever it is I’m going to and I need a big shoe for that.” He adds: “And it is also create a path for other people to follow, to know that the moves this guy has made, the can make those moves and also be successful.”

This however did not go down well with fans as they have tagged this as flimsy excuses and weak PR attempt at redeeming something inconsequential. Others just reacted with laughing emojis, treating the words of Laycon on the video as joke.
